Fair enough maybe I’m just meh on farewell games. I’d rather see someone young get a game who might be better the following year having learnt from that game. 100% expect very few to agree though and that’s totally fine.
It's a round 23 dead rubber. Stoddart is clearly not ready and would gain nothing from being put through another few weeks of senior footy.

Now Pink and Amartey I think should've got their chances, they've earned it IMO, but there'd be not much point now with 2 weeks of the year to go. Might as well take a trip down memory lane and celebrate two champs of our club.

As for the two I mentioned, they won't get their chances now, but I hope their form in the reserves has convinced the club they are worth persisting with. Both could play a part next year I believe.

Bell will start on the pine but I hope him being named on the wing is an indication that Horse will back him in there.

As I said I know others won’t agree- but I’d rather see a few others like Pink, etc get a game
Agree totally. A farewell game when a player is so obviously out of form/no longer able disrespects both their contribution, and the jersey IMHO.
FAR better to see them off with a lap at half time, so we can heartily thank them for their great play over many years, and not cringe at what they are doing on the last.
That said McV if fit warrants a game, as his form was solid prior to going down - and it's not a charity game by any means.

This. Give them a lap of honour.

Kinda feel for Rose. I think he will make a heck of a SANFL player, hes better than NEAFL
Me too. I hope he gets a crack on another list and if he does he will probably do well. For whatever reason he completely dropped his bundle last week. I expect the coaches have little confidence in him and that is how he played.

As I said I know many won’t agree. My stance hasn’t changed, I don’t like farewell games. Some of you do that’s okay. I fully expect Jack to play that game and I’m realistic.

its a dead rubber, its a chance for the afl community to send off some warriors
